Wine tasting in Santa Barbara County for best wines

Blair Fox Cellars is passionate about the production of small lot, hand crafted bottlings of wines from the most premium vineyards in Santa Barbara County. All these wines are vineyard designated and you can truly taste the "terroir" in each glass.

We search for vineyards, which produce grapes with beautiful concentration and intense varietal character. These grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted, fermented in small lots, and basket pressed to ensure the highest possible quality and true expression of the vineyard.

We produce predominately vineyard designated Syrah, estate grown Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Vermentino, and a small amount of Viognier. The red grapes are lightly crushed, partially de-stemmed and punched down by hand throughout fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wines are basket pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for aging. These red wines are aged for two years in barrel prior to being bottled.

The Viognier and Vermentino grapes are hand sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, floral, and fruity qualities of these amazing varietals. The juice is then fermented in older French oak barrels and a small percentage of stainless steel while preventing malo-lactic fermentation to promote bright, crisp acidity.

2018 The Dare

2018 The Dare

92 Points

"More ground pepper, leather, cured meats, and savory herbs notes define the 2018 Syrah The Dare, a 100% Syrah sourced from the finest barrels of Kimsey, Fox Family, Larner, Zotovich, Thompson, and Tierra Alta Vineyards. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, and concentrated, it has a complex, savory, layered, Hermitage-like style that's going to shine for a good 7-8 years."  ∼  Jeb Dunnuck
